Wheat genome

This issue's cover

Science’s Special Issue on Slicing the wheat genome celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Norman Borlaug, the Nobel Prize-winning plant geneticist who, through his contribution to the “green revolution,” reminds us of the importance of applying scientific knowledge to develop crop varieties. This is even more important today as we face a rapidly expanding global population, climate change, and the need to keep agricultural efforts sustainable while minimizing environmental impacts. Accessing the fundamental information of crop genomes aids in accelerating breeding pipelines and improves our understanding of the molecular basis of agronomically important traits, such as yield and tolerance to abiotic and biotic stresses.
